3-6pm in the uk I believe pretty much all of our player base is either
still at work/school
having their high tea (old chap)
commuting
or in some cases asleep

But If I were sheduling these things it would be between 9am and noon uk time on a monday
(when EVERYONE is at work or school pretty much)

^Which would be the middle of the night California time, so they'd have to work overnight.

Yep, will still be at work. 6:30pm is about the earliest I can get online if I am able to at all.

3PM is hardly peak hours in the UK let alone most countries around the world (unless it's a weekend). Most people will be either at work, at school or coming home from either work or school. To me it seems like an idea time to do maintenance as the server is patching and back up by 5PM, which 'is' when people start getting home ready to unwind and maybe spend an evening playing online (the prime time).

They will do it at that time because then if something goes wrong they will have the rest of the day to sort it with a full compliment of staff. It's a sensible move - but if it is no good for people in other countries, emigration is always an option
